This self confessed “kikay” finally tried out one of Flawless’s beauty services early this month – the Easy Peel. For some reason, I’ve always felt hesitant getting my face done in beauty aesthetic places. Sure, I’ll take on spa, scrubs in a heartbeat. But not procedures on my face. But this Flawless first timer was pleasantly surprised that there is a resident doctor to accommodate my concerns as I went to visit Flawless in SM Marikina.
Dra. Faye Candao, SM Marikina’s Flawless resident doctor is one sweet practitioner to boot. She first of all, made me feel at ease and gave me a list of procedures that I can choose from. I am much of a fickle mind that it took us quite a bit before I finally settled on Easy Peel. But she was patient through and through. This for me made a whole difference. Because it totally erased my former mindset (hesistation, if you may) I’ve always had for beauty places, Flawless, for this matter. The most I’ve had done on my face in the last year was when I got hold of my Betty Boop lashes and that was it.
I first asked what would be the procedure that will be done in no time. We thought we’d settle for the Flawless White Injectable (Glutathione). But I later changed my mind. Because a single shot won’t have much of a difference. Although I’m pretty sure to benefit from the anti-oxidant properties, it won’t be enough for me to see anything “review-worthy” just yet. That is unless I decide to take on a 6 week program of 2 shots per week. That would be a long shot, since I still have a year and a half more to wait until I pay off Lady Rouge.
And because I wanted to try out something that I can see a considerable difference after the procedure and the healing process are done, Easy Peel it is.
The Easy Peel Procedure
– rejuvenates the skin
– erases fine lines
– lifts sagging areas of the skin
– heals and diminishes sun damage
– minimizes pigmentation and acne scars
Seeing the Easy Peel procedure from the Flawless menu of services did not appeal to me at first. It turns out the “easy” on the Easy Peel wasn’t to be underestimated. You know the part in our brain that qualifies and disqualifies what “should” be good and what might be “so-so”. I did want to road test this beauty procedure even as I have some tiny sun spot issues on my left cheek.
The Easy Peel procedure uses Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) which smooths out fine surface wrinkles, removes superficial blemishes and corrects pigment problems. Considerations when undergoing peels that has TCA are:
• Can be used on neck or other body areas
• May require pre-treatment with Retin-A or AHA creams
• Treatment takes only 10-15 minutes
• Preferred for darker-skinned patients
• Peel depth can be adjusted
• Repeat treatment may be needed to maintain results
• Sunblock must be used for several months
• Healing is usually quick, much quicker than with a phenol peel
All medical procedures in Flawless are done by their resident doctors. You will not be thrown off to random aestheticians, no matter how well trained they may be if it is going to be a medical procedure like this one. The mixture of the solution and the application of the medicine that was layered on my skin was done by Dra. Candao, no less. This gave me the confidence in Flawless all the more.
The Easy Peel procedure will set you back P3,000. But I’d say, it is well worth it. My sun spots may not have disappeared altogether. But it definitely lightened a notch or two. I still can’t post pictures as some portions of my face are still on peeling mode.
This Flawless visit definitely reconstructed the way I now look at Flawless Face and Body Clinic and I am sure to go back for another pampering session. Check out the Flawless Facebook Fan Page for promos and updates:-)
